OH Militia becomes National Guard?

I have an ancestor, Almeron Benson, who was a major in the OH militia fron 1850-1855. At that time, he moved to WI. There he enlisted to join the Infantry. Would his militia info be in a file at NARA? Can somone tell me about the militia? I am not military savy, at all. What is the rank of major about in the militia?
